October Membership Meeting – 10/2 @7pm

Membership meeting this Thursday, October 2nd 7pm upstairs Room #4 at the Almaden Community Center
  • Dock repair party
  • E Board Volunteers and Nominations
  • Support Position volunteers
We are in need of several volunteers for positions including;
  • VP Membership
  • VP Tournaments
  • Corresponding Secretary
  • Member(s)-at-Large
  • Course Caretaker
  • Scorer
  • Social Committee
A lot of the veteran club members have never volunteered for a Board or Supporting position. Now is the time to step up! During my 10+ years on the Board, I continue to see the same faces stepping up to help run this club. The old adage, “10% of the members do 90% of the work” has unfortunately held true. It’s possible some long term Board members are just “burnt out”. Time to step up “members in the shadows”! It’s too easy to just sit back and let the usual suspects do all the work. “Hey, there’s no water, what’s the point?”. Members who participate, realize a dry lake is actually an opportunity for improvement. We need everyone’s help!
Active and Inactive dues, proof of current USA WATERSKI Membership, and work hours are due Thursday November 6th.  
Please contact Scot G ASAP regarding nominations, volunteering, or issues with Membership renewal.
